Cute little animals to brighten your day

I am desperately in love with these gorgeous creatures from Le Animalé. Lauren has created the most adorable menagerie of tiny animals, all created in clay and paint. They are so sweet and special. Definitely going on my Christmas wish list (yes, Santa – I am starting early!)

A dear friend of ours is out here from the UK at the moment. He is one of those nutters that has travelled half way across the globe to participate in next Sunday’s Argus Cycle Race. While he has been languishing on our sunny shores his family back home have been madly house training their newest family member – Murphy. Murphy is a white miniature schnauzer and I have it on good authority that she is possibly the cutest puppy in the world. Take a look for your self… isnt she adorable!

Sharing our house with a cat has meant that having a dog is not a possibility (Stripey Cat is NOT a dog friendly cat) But I do dream of going for long walks, hanging out in the park (without looking like a wierdo) and buying loads of awesome doggie accessories.
Make no mistake, I am not one of those “dog in a handbag” types and I certainly don’t approve of dogs wearing outfits but if you have the pooch you may as well make sure it has all the proper goodies that any self respecting dog would need.

I have hand picked some cute things I think would suite Murphy perfectly. Cavanagh family – start saving your pennies!

1. Red Honey Comb Bow Tie from Silly Buddy
2. Dog Toy Tomato from Wags and Wiggles
3. Handmade Felt Tote Bag from Wags and Wiggles
4. pEI Pod for Doggy
5. Dog cushions from Better Homes & Gardens
The photo of Murphy was taken by Jo-Anne Cavanagh.

22 March 2012 Update: Murphy has been featured on Pretty Fluffy as today’s Daily Fluff. Go Murphy!

Little People Project

Slinkachu has been abandoning little people in the streets since 2006.
His miniature scenes are created using remodeled train set people. He carefully places them in real life scenes and then photographs them up close and from a distance. Slinkachu likes to think of his street art as being subtle and sensitive, “I want people to be able to empathise with the tiny people in my works.”

Slinkachu is also famous for other imaginative forms of ephemeral art such as his Inner City Snail “A slow-moving street art project”. He creates teeny tiny graffiti tags (using non-toxic paint of course) on the shells of snails and then releases them into the urban wild, photographing them as they charge off.
